Baby over the railing at the Canberra Centre?

By johnboy 24 April 2007 23

Thanks to emd for the tip, the Essential Baby forum has reports of a baby going over the railing at the Canberra Centre this morning:

I was shopping in the Canberra Centre today and was up on level 1 near Pumpkin Patch/Australian Geographic when there were a couple of awful screams and I saw people run to the railing. Half the people that rushed to the railing turned around in horror with their hands over their mouths saying they couldn’t look. As I had my daughter I could not see anything but I heard that a child had fallen from the top level. My daughter started sensing something was wrong so I had to scoot her quickly to the back of a shop far away from the incident.

Anyone know more?

Suicides’ should be reported. Every one should know. Let the media report each and every suicide. Would almost need a full page.

The Belconnen mall suicide was initally reported by the media whey they only knew it to be a fall.

Once it was known to be suicide they exercised the usual discretion to not generally report suicides in the media.
